Cessation of the Fawley desalination plant in Hampshire

An interim update from Southern Water was received proposing the discontinuation of the desalination plant in Hampshire. More information can be found here.

Following a review, we are satisfied that the desalination proposals have been developed in sufficient detail to allow a coherent view to be formed on their likely constraints, opportunities, costs and benefits. RAPID agree with the proposal presented by Southern Water that a desalination solution in this location should not be funded to further progress its investigation and development at this time for the reasons set out in this letter.

New solution proposals:

The proposed solutions below are being assessed to gate one standards.
